I have been thinking lately about the choices I’ve been making. How are they affecting me, my mood, my goals..and what my contribution is and why. Am I not letting myself grow and thrive because of some invalid reason or idea or whatever it may be.
I’ve allowed myself to get distracted by life and it’s happenings….Instagram, Twitter, I mean, even as I type this I have another screen on playing some series, I get into bed and continue watching something till I can’t fight sleep anymore….I think I have a problem. What do you think?
In order to challenge myself, I am asking: Why do I do this to myself? Why am I distracting or allowing myself to be distracted like this? I haven’t read my book in weeks and that is not good. I realized how much I’ve missed reading when I was in the salon and I got really engrossed in it. Also I am sleeping better without my watch. I like to use it to track my sleep but I feel more rested and relaxed when I don’t have it on. I noticed that I would wake up in the middle of the night when the light would hit my eyelids.
So bit by bit I’m making some changes.
No watch at night.
Letting myself sleep when I feel sleepy. The movie or series will still be there in the morning.
Read more at night.
It’s amazing that some simple changes make such a big difference.
With these changes I am tackling my phone during the say such as turning of the Wi-Fi connection for an hour so as to keep me on task. If I keep up with the reading I can write reviews on the books.
I hope you’re doing better or just as good as I am and if you aren’t, I hope you can sit with yourself and ask yourself why that is. Have an honest and gentle conversation with yourself, give yourself grace, challenge yourself, ask yourself why things are the way they are and what your contribution to the situation is.
Adios, dear reader.
